Superintendent McDonald and the Board of Education honored James Rodems Monday night.

Jamie, assistant superintendent for management services, recently retired after 11 years of service to the District. Jamie started with the District on July 1, 2009. Prior to his time here, Jamie worked in the Tully and Clyde Savannah school districts.

Jamie has been instrumental with securing voter approval for multiple capital projects, including:
  • C. W. Baker High School Auditorium Renovation (Performing Arts)
  •  C. W. Baker High School Kitchen Remodel; Renovation of Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium
  • New Energy Efficient LED Lighting at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium (First stadium in an upstate school district to have LED lights)
  • Construction of the New BCSD Transportation Center
  • Roofing Projects for School Buildings and the Baldwinsville Public Library
  • Smart Bond Initiative - BCSD's Award-$3,697,360 (Phase 1-Upgraded the District's Network Infrastructure) (Phase 2-Safety & Security for All School Buildings)
We are grateful for Jamie’s dedication to the BCSD and his commitment to his fiduciary responsibilities. He has received a 100% approval rating for all of his budgets by wide margins.

The Board of Education, District administration, and school community wish him a happy and healthy retirement. Thank you, Jamie!
